    Hi I have allready planned a trip to florida my room is a hour or so away I will not actually be staying at Disney I’m looking into bringing my son one day while we are there and I’m trying to get the cheapest tickets . I would only like to do one day

    Hi there, Allison!

    Welcome to planDisney. I’m delighted to hEAR you’ll be bringing your Mouseketeer to The Most Magical Place on Earth! You’re both sure to have a wonderful time and make magical memories! 

    Allison, the cheapest theme park ticket would be a one-day base ticket. This would allow you to spend all day at one theme park of your choice. You are free to leave and return all day to the theme park if you’d like. If your Mouseketeer is under the age of 3, he is considered a Guest of Mickey Mouse and will not need a theme park ticket or a Disney Park Pass reservation. As a reminder, Guests ages 3 and up need both, valid tickets and Disney Park Pass reservations to enter the theme parks.

    There are some great ways to save money at the theme parks! Here are some that may help you stick to a budget-friendly trip:
    -Eating a big breakfast before you head out will give you energy and save you money. In fact, by bringing your lunch and snacks, you’ll spend less on food. 

    -Rather than purchasing water bottles, you can get free cups of water (with or without ice) at most of the Quick-Service dining locations, so do be sure to ask a Cast Member where you can get a cup of water. Even if they don’t have water on their site, they can point you to the closest spot where you can quench your thirst! Of course, you can also bring reusable water bottles to fill up around the parks!

    -Pack extra clothes. Sometimes the shoes you thought were comfortable weren’t, or the rain might have gotten your shoes wet. If you can pack an extra pair of flip-flops, you won’t have to purchase a backup pair. There are First Aid stations in each theme park, should you need bandages, over-the-counter medications, and other quick remedies. 

    -Since surprise showers are usually part of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, grabbing cheap ponchos ahead of time is ideal. They’re easy to throw into a backpack, and purchasing rain gear at the parks can get expensive. 

    -Speaking of purchasing things ahead of time, a friend of mine would buy souvenirs on sale before the trip and gift the goodies to her kiddos while they were at the theme parks. It was genius! 

    I hope you and your Mouseketeer have the most enchanting visit, Allison!
